Novation 61 SL MK3 USB MIDI Keyboard

Bring MIDI hardware and CV/Gate synths together by plugging them all into SL MkIII, taking total control directly from the internal eight-track polyphonic pattern-based sequencer.

Easily integrate hardware with your DAW

Do you use a DAW and crave integrating your favorite hardware? Well, you can have the best of both worlds. Make controlling your software easy by recording productions from a studio centerpiece.

The perfect controller for Live

Novation worked with Ableton to create an absolutely stunning keyboard controller for their Live music-making software. The five color LCD screens give you full parameter feedback, enabling you to see everything you are controlling.

Internal eight-track pattern-based sequencer

Real time record or input notes per step. Play and edit your sequences directly from the keyboard. Record your movements as automation into the sequencer, bringing life to your production.

One routable clock for the whole system

Whether you're in the box or outside the box, the MIDI and analogue clock and transport controls keep everything running in time.

Arpeggiator

Choose an arp type, set a sync rate, tweak the length, and then use the pads to design your rhythms in real time.

Customizable templates

Highly customizable mappings for hardware and software easily control everything. Create your own templates in the software editor, and save them to the keyboard.

LED feedback

Work with scales and keys and set up multiple zones and layers on the keyboard. See everything instantly with vibrant on-key RGB LED feedback.

Comprehensive connectivity

USB; MIDI In, Out, Out 2/Thru; three pedal inputs; Analogue Clock Out; and two CV Pitch, Gate, and Mod outputs can be used to route anything anywhere.

Control all major music software

Your choice of music software is crucial to your creativity. SL MkIII's pads, buttons, eight faders and eight knobs take control of all major music software using InControl. SL MkIII also works with any HUI-compatible DAW.

High-resolution scan

The SL MkIII has an exceptionally high scan rate of 10kHz (10,000 times per second), giving the keyboard a huge dynamic range for expressive keyboard performance.

Keys for the player

The 49SL MkIII boasts Novation's finest, most playable and expressive synth-style semi-weighted, sprung action keybed, and their highest scan rate, all tuned to the needs of the experienced player. It's got aftertouch too, assignable to anything.

Selectable Velocity Curves

The Velocity Curves come to you from a Novation engineer who's been designing and playing keyboard controllers for two decades. Choose from a comprehensive selection of Velocity Curves to suit your playing style.

Pads

SL MkIII's velocity-sensitive RGB pads have multiple functions: they can be used for launching clips, as steps in the sequencer, they are perfect for the finger drummer, and have polyphonic aftertouch.

Backlit Pitch and Modulation wheels

Pitch and Modulation wheels have RGB LEDs that change color to show what track you're working on. Brightness gives you the value of what you're changing.

Components

Components allows you to backup and restore your templates and sessions in the cloud, enabling access from anywhere in the world. All content can also be saved locally.

"The end all controller to rule them all"
Sound: Uh...there are no sounds, n/a Feature: For me, the most important features in a midi controller:1. 61+ keys that feel good and have aftertouch2. programmable midi cc controller knobs/faders (some DSI synths are a bit weird in this regard, so this is a necessity)3. non-usb bus power option, for dawless adventures. If a unit has a ps, even if I have to buy it separately, I do. Ease of Use: Updating this unit balked initially, but the second go was fine, the software to do so is a bit heavy IMO, close all other internetikins. My emu xboard49 doesn't always show up as on even though it is, the SLmkIII however hasn't failed to do so, once. Quality: The 'feel' of this unit is on par with what I expect from Novation (owner of BSII, Ultranova, Peak), in fact, the keys kind of feel like the BSII as a reference and I hold every keybed up to my AN1X, which I adore. This...is right there, everything else has fallen short :) Value: This unit is a smidge on the expensive side, but the value of its versatility and hopefully, longevity makes it well worth it. I am considering purchasing a backup, because they don't tend to make things that are good for very long. The quality of the usb cable is at a level I have never experienced before and I'm going to replace every cable with this woven type. Manufacturer Support: Never needed to contact to support The Wow Factor: After the Peak, this unit has the silver in OMG, wow factor. Both are from Novation, interesting...What factors in the wow factor? One word, versatility. A thing can do something, no problem, but when a thing can do...*counts on fingers for a bit* alot, it's value becomes exponential, thank you Novation. Overall: This is the midi controller I have dreamed of, way to go Novation!
Style of Music: Ambient, experimental, drone
